                                                          Spring Break 2018

                                                          Kristi S.hOLLAND, tx

                                                          We really enjoyed our stay, and it truly is the closest we have stayed to the beach compared to other beach front rentals we have done over the years. The inside of the home could use a little TLC, there were light bulbs out, dryer didn’t dry well, and the outdoor shower didnt work during our stay, however the faucets outdoors and on the deck worked, which we used quite a bit! You do need to bring stuff from your own paper towels, hand soaps, toilet paper, etc. While I knew prices would be higher because of Spring Break, I just expected more out of the house for the price we paid. The beach access, deck, and closeness were all very enjoyable! I will add, that this house is close to 2 public beach access spots, which can seem to attract some unwanted beach parties, especially on Spring Break..

                                                          Owner was great to deal with, and overall this was a great vacation!

                                                          Hi Kristi,

                                                          Thanks for taking the time to leave us this feedback . We wish we had known about the problems during your stay so we could help out. Anyhow, thanks for pointing them out. We are checking on the issues you mentioned and will make sure they will taken care of.

                                                          Thank you.

                                                          Overall very nice

                                                          angela v.

                                                          We loved the cottage overall. Pros- view is breathtaking, manager is very responsive and helpful, beds were very comfortable, kitchen is well stocked. Overall, it’s a beautiful waterfront cottage with close proximity to everything!

                                                          Cons- could have used extra kitchen towels and toilet paper, handsoap in bathrooms, and small toiletries. At this price point these could should have been included. Also, master shower shower curtain was moldy and needed changing. The sofa covers may need washing. With these small changes it would have been 5 stars easily!

                                                          Family reunion in Sunny Beach

                                                          Sara M.Boerne, TX

                                                          This was our second stay at this home. We picked it because of the convenience on the beach and only 5 min grocery run. It was under renovation during this stay, but it did not effect our trip. The home did not have floor mats this time, which isn't a great match for sandy feet. Nor did we find kitchen towels or hot pads for the oven. Other than those minor things, it's a great getaway place!

                                                          Awesome!! Heaven on Earth!!

                                                          Alison C.

                                                          We spent three lovely nights here and it was AWESOME!! The pictures don't do justice for the house, its definitely very nice. The house was very clean, it had everything we needed and more. You can open the balcony gate and walk right on the beach.

                                                          The beach was very clean, and not crowded, & the neighborhood was quiet! The whole experience was just awesome!! The house is not too close or too far from anything that you want to do in town. The sunset is amazing from the balcony!! I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a nice relaxing beachfront house to stay here!! This is where we will be staying on our next family vacation to Galveston!

                                                          Catherine D.

                                                          This is the second year we've stayed in this house for our annual girls weekend, and it's perfect. Love that it's right on the beach for quick walks and spent a lot of time reading on the rocking chairs on the front porch. The bedrooms are quiet and comfortable, the kitchen is well appointed, and the living room has a great couch for movie watching and game playing. We truly love this little home away from home!
